You would think that I would enjoy art-noise, given my love for King Crimson. After all, about half of their first album is sparse, atmospheric sound with little going on most of the time. But where Crimson has always succeeded in creating undying melodies and the most complex arrangements ever, most art-noise is content to wallow at the lowest level and focus on just the noise.
To call Deutsch Nepal "music" is an insult to the countless talented people who are capable of stringing two notes together. This is basically a Halloween sound-effects album, and not even a good one. Pretentious, downright silly speech samples sit on top of monotonous keyboard drivel in "songs" that would even bore Trent Reznor.
In a press release accompanying this album, the band had this so say about their music:
"I don't believe in anything and there is no meaning behind my music...it's totally empty...I'm not interested in having a concept or direction because it's like a limit ... and then I suppose I'd have to break it."
That just about says it all. This is a worthless, horrible album.
